UK-based Israeli artist Ori Gersht will be showing two major moving image works Evaders (2009, from the Towner Collection) and The Forest, (2005) alongside a series of large scale photographs.

Evaders is a fascinating film work that uses long panoramic shots to trace the journey of writer and poet, Walter Benjamin through the Pyrnees in 1940 during World War II to escape the Nazi regime.
